The red envelope (“Hong Bao”), also known as lucky money (cash or check) holder, is like the Chinese wand of hope, and it often carries boundless blessings. In Chinese society, it is believed that the red envelope has positive, good power to protect people from negative, bad energy (“Chi”). And, the red envelope will bring good luck to both the person who receives it and to the person who gives it. The giving of red envelope is not limited to New Year celebrations. The lucky money is often given throughout the year for weddings, birthdays, major holidays, graduations, appreciations, or sympathy. The large red envelope can hold the entire cash bills without folding it, and/or some small treasure items, such as rings, or necklaces. The modern red envelopes that have been printed with auspicious phrases and colorful images are so beautiful that they are often displayed on appropriate places in the home or office to bring good Feng Shui, i.e. to help attract good energy (“Chi”) for success and happiness.
